PLEASE do not post anything about downloading (or lack thereof) here. It is REALLY Frustrating to come looking for people's experiences with the platform and have to scroll through tens of pages of "downloading now!" crap. I really couldn't care a less about when Frank in Timbucktu is starting their download. From past experiences 90% of the people who register today will download it within a couple of bours. If you want to post about hour download experience find another thread. Thanks in advance.
Hate to disappoint you, but this update probably won't bring Skype to the Playbook. Sideloaded Android Skype at least.
Skype on Android uses native libraries (namely libvideohost_skype.so and libpcmhost_skype.so) which provide audio and video calling support. Playbook's Android virtual machine, however, does not support native libraries yet. This is the reason why audio calling did not work in 2.0 even with microphone access available in the Android Emulator.
I can confirm that multiple android apps can run simultaneously. I ran four at once with no problems. Maybe this will cure the frozen android player problem. Also, there was no need to reinstall android apps (didn't we have to with previous updates?)
